Sounds fantastic!

I think you should extend the existing dialog. Either a combo box, or
multiple check boxes for osm, gpx and landsat (and contours - I assume
that's next).

Hmm. After my camera battery ran out on Sunday morning, I switched to
pen/paper logging. It was easiest for me to take the default waypoint
numbers, then jot down "Avenue Road 127->128" etc. The only problem is that
AFAICS JOSM doesn't display the waypoint ID. I realise this isn't exactly
the same as what you are doing. 

It would be great if you could post your patches to the dev list, (or make
them available some other way). I have to say I was impressed with your "map
view" patch when I saw it. Maybe you should post some screenshots of that
